Holidays in Newlyn

Newlyn is a traditional Cornish fishing town which is home to one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK. Stroll along the pretty harbourside and you’ll be able to spot beam trawlers, long liners, crabbers and small open boats used for hand-lining.


Experience the buzz of a thriving, hardworking harbour and taste the freshest fish on offer in Cornwall. The harbour is overlooked by white washed and granite Cornish fisherman’s cottages interwoven by narrow lanes and cobbled alleys often too steep or narrow for a car so all you will find is the odd cat basking in the sunshine. Enjoy the buzz of Newlyn’s working harbour, visit Newlyn Art Gallery or the wonderful established gardens with breath-taking views across to the iconic Penzance Jubilee Pool.

Locally caught seafood can be purchased from the bustling fish market, fishmongers or at one of the fantastic harbourside eateries. Escape to Newlyn for a self catering holiday in a peaceful setting, within easy reach of Mousehole, Penzance and St Michael’s Mount. 

Top tip

Be sure to treat yourself to a Jelberts ice cream when staying in Newlyn!

Newlyn art community

The Newlyn School is a group of artists who came to live and work in Newlyn or the surrounding area between the 1880s and the early twentieth century. They painted en plein air (in the open air). Perhaps best known are: Stanhope Forbes, Elizabeth Forbes, Walter Langley, Harold Knight, Laura Knight, Harold Harvey. There is much documentation about the school at Penlee House.

The collection is kept at Penlee House rather than the Newlyn Gallery because Newlyn Gallery maintains a tradition of showing modern art. 

Newlyn Gallery & Exchange Gallery in Penzance Town Centre host the best of conceptual and modern art. Together with St. Ives Tate and Penlee House the four galleries host major national and international exhibitions, as well as showing the work of the Newlyn School of Art, who offer a wide range of high quality art courses run by some of the most exciting artists in the region. Read more about art classes at Newlyn school of art on our blog. Thus the area which has inspired so many artists celebrates its artistic heritage while maintaining strong links with the art world of today.

We had a really lovely week at Blue Waters. Very comfortable and well equipped house in a good position with great views. Newlyn is a super spot, especially if you like fish! Would happily return.

This is a beautifully furnished property with a real marine theme. The view of Newlyn harbour from the window is endlessly fascinating. It is a great base for exploring this area of Cornwall, or staying in and watching the magnificent views across the bay if the weather is less good. Also a great place for buying fish to take home!

A lovely cottage - beautifully furnished and with fantastic views of the harbour.

Beautiful property, Amazing views over the harbour.

Light and bright throughout

Blue Waters is a wonderfully comfortable house with fabulous seaviews. There is a car parking space right outside the front door. The games room was very popular with all the family! The garage is so useful - a brilliant space to drop off wetsuits and beach towels that need to dry before venturing out the next day. And the bedrooms are really comfortable, the master bedroom enjoying terrific views of the fishing harbour. Newlyn is very interesting and a visit to the Newlyn Art Gallery, Dukes Cafe and a walk to Mousehole are an absolute must whilst you stay there!

A wonderful stay in this beautiful home. The furnishings and décor are of a very high standard and a lot of love and care has gone into this home. There was everything that we needed and the welcome cream tea, milk and flowers were an extra bonus.

We had a fantastic week despite the wild, wet and windy weather of storm Dennis. There is plenty to do and see in and around Newlyn and the coast was spectacular!

Walking down the very steep hill to the town was not a problem but coming back up was rather a challenge!!

Lovely cottage with comfortable facilities and decor outstanding. Good base to explore Cornwall

Great location and lovely decor, in a quiet neighbourhood close to shops and restaurants. We appreciated the scones and the flowers. The children loved the games room and we enjoyed reading the books and the amazing views. The garage with its laundry machine and dryer were also very convenient. We were happy with everything. As a Dutch family we enjoyed Cornwall with a feeling of being a local. In a very pretty house.

A lovely house with wonderful views day and night. Lovely artwork. Everything you needed was supplied. Good games room with table tennis and Wii U and games for the kids. Good parking

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Waters. We found the property clean, comfortable and beautifully presented. We loved watching the activity in the harbour and even though the weather was not great, we've managed to get out and explore a lot of what West Cornwall has to offer. Hopefully we'll be back!

Amazing. Beautiful home , views out of this world! I can’t fault it. I wish I could stay there forever x

Brilliant property !! Stunning views of the harbour Lovely photos and décor throughout this well presented property and in a great location to explore the surrounding areas.

the best cottage I've ever stayed in. Cornwall is my home, and I've stayed in many cottages, but I give Blue Water five stars and will be back

From the minute we set foot in Blue Waters we felt totally relaxed and at home. Fully equipped with everything a family could need and a great place to come back to after a busy day at the beach or sight seeing. We will miss this house a lot and hope to come back. Newlyn as an area was fantastic. More residential than holiday resort, which was just what we wanted. Will miss the sounds of the working harbour and the walks we did from there. It was the perfect 2 week break and we all felt totally relaxed and on 'Cornish time' before starting back at work and school.

Love, love, love it. We have stayed in many houses around Cornwall and this was definitely the best for us. Beautifully presented, well equipped and very clean. Glad we have rebooked another week in August. We love the view and have had gorgeous weather for this time of year.

Really beautiful house with amazing views. Decorated very tastefully. So lovely to arrive and be welcomed by a cream tea. Christmas decorations gave a very home-from-home feel. Highly recommend staying here.

Beautiful location with a great view. A very modern and comfy holiday home with everything we needed. Would highly recommend

My husband and I spent a delightful week at Blue Waters at the end of July. When we arrived, we were so impressed by the beautiful view of Newlyn harbour from the living room and master bedroom that we almost didn't notice the lovely vase of carnations left on the table to welcome us. The makings of a proper Cornish cream tea were laid out on a tray in the kitchen, and were so generous it took two sessions to finish them! We loved the décor of the house with the nautical/beach/Cornwall theme present in each room. It was a pleasure to prepare meals in the spacious kitchen. We followed many of the owners' recommendations in their very detailed binder, and so we were able to feast on crab, fish and nettle Yarg, all bought from local merchants. We are so happy we chose to stay in Newlyn as it made it easy for us to explore West Penwith and the Lizard peninsula, much of it walkingon the South-West Coastal Path. And we are especially happy that we had such a beautiful place to come "home" to at the end of every day!

very nice cottage, very comfortable, really nice sea view quiet neighbourhood we had a great time there, we also liked Newquay and the sourroundings nice restaurants in Newquay and also a small supermarket and a few shops

Blue Waters is a lovely home, with a great view over the Newlyn harbour and St. Michaels Mount. It had everything we could have possibly needed and we really enjoyed our stay. We will definitely be back!

A lovely decorated and furnished home away from home with good books, a great couch, a safe parking spot, situated in a quiet area which is perfect for exploring Cornwall. We loved the views across the bay!

Blue Waters provides excellent holiday accommodation and a great base to explore the local area. The property was spotlessly clean on arrival and is beautifully furnished and decorated. The views over Newlyn harbour and Mount Bay are splendid and provide their own in-house entertainment.
